10+ Times Movies Trolled Their Fans

There once was a time when the only trolls you'd have to worry about lived under bridges in fairytales. Nowadays, they can be found all over the internet, injecting their negativity throughout the pop culture paradigm like poison.

But our favorite movies aren't defenseless.

In fact, many are wise to the game and have started clapping back at fans and audiences galore! See what I mean and check out these 10+ times movies trolled their fans.

Alice's vision in *Breaking Dawn: Part 2*.

Audiences had learned to rely on Alice's visions of the future and to heed them with a warning.

Being made to believe that many of the Cullens were dead lead to one of the best 'gotcha' moments in recent cinematic history.

When *Deadpool* broke the 4th wall.

Deadpool breaks the 4th wall at various times throughout the film. It's his way of injecting on the spot commentary on a variety of action movie/superhero tropes.

Seeing Wade donning the same robe/delivering the same close-credits speech a Ferris Bueller was priceless.

The New Year's Eve photograph in *The Shining*.

If Stanley Kubrick was looking to drive generations of horror-loving-movie-goers insane, he's succeeded. Jack's photo on the wall raises several questions, each more complicated than the last.

Was he there all along? Did all of this take place in his mind? Or is it possible that the hotel took him?

Casey Becker does everything you're not supposed to do in a horror movie in *Scream*.

Scream is meant to be taken as Wes Craven's commentary on the entire horror genre.

By killing off the movie's biggest star in the first 10 minutes, Craven shocked audiences and set the tone of what was to come.

When *Chinatown* subverts the status quo.

Chinatown was one of the first films that had audiences collectively asking "What was the point of that?"

Not only does it offer little to no resolution as far as the overall plot is concerned, but it's also a glib statement on the futility of life and relationships.

The fake opening scene in *Scream 4*.

Over the years, the Scream franchise has become well-known for its highly climactic and theatrical opening death sequences.

But a fake intro? That's cranking things up a notch. Especially when it's done through the lens of a Stab film; the fake horror franchise Craven created within the Scream universe.

Odin's fake Infinity Gauntlet in *Thor: Ragnarok*.

When the Infinity Gauntlet was shown in Thor, it was mistakenly depicted as being made for Thanos' right hand instead of his left.

Showing Hela knocking over the Gauntlet, proclaiming it to be a "fake," corrects the initial error and claps back at eagle-eyed comic book fans simultaneously.

Turning *South Park: Bigger, Longer, And Uncut* into a musical.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone troll everything from the Baldwin brothers to Saddam Hussein in South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut.

The choice to turn it into a musical also was a tongue-in-cheek way of getting themselves nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song!

*Birdman* gets meta.

Birdman is a satirical reflection of the state of modern cinema.

The play within a play is supposed to be a statement of how films and movies are perceived by today's audiences.

The entire premise behind *Idiocracy*.

Most science fiction envisions a utopian future. One where humanity gradually gets better and smarter as the millennia pass. Idiocracy is the total opposite.

The future is dystopian, its people are remarkably unintelligent, but what's scariest of all is that it feels completely plausible.

Pausing and rewinding in *Funny Games*.

Of course, it wouldn't be enough to just make a horror film about the implications and effects of violence on a young developing mind.

Director Michael Haneke actually depicts his villains pausing and rewinding the film at will. Thus taking away any element of perceived control that the audience may have had.

When Kevin Smith made fun of the cast and the audience in *Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back*.

Kevin Smith can't help but troll the audience. At one point in the movie, Holden McNeil (Ben Affleck) actually says "A Jay and Silent Bob movie? Who'd pay to see that?"

It's just one of several examples of incredible 4th wall breaks throughout.

The happy ending in *Wayne's World 2*.

Wayne's World 2 is one of those rare examples of a sequel that tops the original.

One of the best ways that the movie pokes fun at the audience is by playing out a variety of different endings until, ultimately, Wayne and Garth can agree on which suits their audience best.

Good guys die too in *The Departed*.

The ending of The Departed is neither good nor bad, happy, or sad. It's an ending — simple as that.

The film spends two hours toying with our notion of a cop caper and then dashes our expectations to pieces.

Did the top stop spinning in *Inception*?

This is the question that Christopher Nolan fans have been asking themselves for nearly a decade. Does Nolan himself know the answer or did he simply throw it in there to drive his fans mad?

The world may never know...unless we get an Inception 2.
